Hello, I live in Georgia and I need to know how to file a general denial as an answer to a debt collection suit to buy some time. Does anyone have a copy that I can fill my information into or know where I can get one?

The answer is not as general as that. The court has a blank form to use, basically put the case caption, then address each numbered paragraph with either - admit, deny, or without specific information to either admit or deny. The court will then put the case on the court calendar, which will buy you some time, and when the first case date comes you could always ask for a continuance to prepare.

So if I go to the courthouse (or I could just make my own on Word too, right) I ask for a blank answer form. The simply put I defendant deny paragraph 01. then line 02 acknowledge address is correct, etc etc. How do I sum it all up?
Expert:  Terry L. replied 6 years ago.
That is correct, you can request an order dismissing the case
